The USA is home to several of the world's most exciting cities, some truly mind-blowing landscapes, a strong sense of regionalism, a trenchant mythology, more history than the country gives itself credit for and, arguably, some of the most approachable natives in the world. The US was fashioned from an incredibly disparate population who, with little in common apart from a desire to choose their own paths to wealth or heaven, rallied around the ennobling ideals of the Declaration of Independence to forge the richest, most inventive and most powerful country on earth.

Aloha, Hawaii

Tue, 22 Oct 2019 | By graynomadsusa | Views [3]

OUR STATEROOM ON THE NOORDAM APPEARS to be an afterthought.  It’s about one-third smaller than a normal inside cabin and is oriented longitudinally.  I suppose we, too, are an afterthought.  The cruise began in Vancouver but we ... Read more >

Mad About Madison

Sat, 19 Oct 2019 | By graynomadsusa | Views [52]

MADISON IS THE FIRST OF MY FRIENDS’ GRANDKIDS we have ever met—Paul and Noreen’s are already approaching adulthood, Rod and Lois’s are solidly entrenched in New Jersey and we will all be long buried before Frank’s daughters ... Read more >

Tue, 15 Oct 2019 | By graynomadsusa | Views [45]

MORE THAN 9 MILLION HAOLES  LIKE US visit Oahu each year.  They come for the sun and the surf.  For Pearl Harbor and Diamond Head.  And for many, a week in Waikiki is the beginning of a life together.  For others it's the ... Read more >

USA July & August

Mon, 26 Aug 2019 | By nomad_kiwis | Views [74]

Mid July I flew with my friend and her partner to Los Angeles where I picked up a Triumph America 900cc as a rental and my friend bought a 2000 Harley Davidson Fatboy with 7,000 miles on it. We rode from LA out through Zion, Bryce Canyon, Route 12 &... Read more >

Screwed Again

Wed, 24 Jul 2019 | By vagabonds3 | Views [48]

VIETNAM VETERANS OFTEN BEMOAN THE LACK of fanfare upon their return to the “Land of the Big PX.”  And I guess I’m no exception. I returned from Vietnam on 24 July 1969, 50 years ago yesterday and, damn it, I deserved a celebratory ... Read more >

Almost Nome

Sun, 21 Jul 2019 | By vagabonds3 | Views [33]

THE BERING SEA WASN’T MUCH ROUGHER than the Gulf of Alaska and Maasdam took it in stride.  In order to make our ETA in Nome, 36 hours due north of Dutch Harbor, Captain Jutten upped our speed to 18 knots and, judging by the spray on deck, ... Read more >

Dutch Harbor

Fri, 19 Jul 2019 | By vagabonds3 | Views [40]

AS THE PUFFIN SHUFFLES, IT’S ABOUT 700 MILES from Kodiak to Unalaska and Dutch Harbor, a fishing port best known from the TV show, Deadliest Catch.  Wizard, Northwestern and the other crab fishing boats weren’t in when the Maasdam docked ... Read more >

Relocating Pets

Fri, 19 Jul 2019 | By mwollak | Views [62]

Bringing my best friend.  I have had Charlee for just over 2 years now.  I grew up with dogs and have always wanted to get a dog but it is a huge commitment in terms of time, money, and lifestyle changes.  However, when my therapist recommended ... Read more >

Work Permit Paperwork for Vietnam

Fri, 19 Jul 2019 | By mwollak | Views [178]

The bureaucratic hoops have by far been the most frustrating part of the process thus far.  I had to collect, notarize, and authenticate too many documents to count and the process has been so confusing that I have oscillated between "I've ... Read more >

Kodiak in the Sunshine

Wed, 17 Jul 2019 | By vagabonds3 | Views [59]

A WHILE AFTER WE LEFT SITKA ON MONDAY EVENING, Connie and I watched as the harbor pilot Cirque du Soleil-ed from the Maasdam’s rope ladder onto the launch that would return him to port.  His isn’t a job to envy in heavy seas. ... Read more >

Sitka

Mon, 15 Jul 2019 | By vagabonds3 | Views [55]

WE WERE AWAKENED AT 4AM BY THE BLARING of the Maasdam’s emergency alarm.  No, we hadn’t collided with an iceberg Titanic -style, rather a smoke alarm detected an electrical overload.  The captain reassured us that the crew had ... Read more >

Ketchikan and Misty Fjords National Wilderness

Sun, 14 Jul 2019 | By vagabonds3 | Views [76]

THE CAPTAIN DID A WONDERFUL JOB OF PARALLEL parking in Ketchikan, squeezing the Maasdam between the Celebrity and Carnival ships, while another, smaller, cruise ship is anchored offshore.  It isn’t yet 8AM and we can see hoards from the ... Read more >

Seattle to Ketchikan

Sat, 13 Jul 2019 | By vagabonds3 | Views [68]

WE ARE GETTING PRETTY COMFORTABLE USING UBER.  As simple as the ap is, it’s still a little foreign to old farts like me.  But we successfully took Uber from Seattle’s Union Station to SeaTac, where we rented a car, then drove to ... Read more >
